That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Axcelis Technologies's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.23. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Axcelis Technologies's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Axcelis Technologies's SIR currently stands at 2.71. In other words for every 100,000 Axcelis Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2710 shares are currently held short.
However Axcelis Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Axcelis Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Axcelis Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Axcelis Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Axcelis Technologies shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0243% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Axcelis Technologies shares, roughly 24 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Axcelis Technologies.
